Jonathan Coulton – The Future Soon chords

Chords
Transpose:
This version fits people with a deeper voice better than the previous ones. 
Basically it's the same, though.

Bridge
D# A#Here on Earth they'll wonder
D# GAs I piece by piece replace myself
D# A#And the steel and circuits will make me whole
Am D7sus4 D7But I'll still feel so alone
Em A+ *Until Laura calls me home
[ * Instead of A+, JoCo plays A or A7(sus) here when he plays this song live; the A + is a little hard to hit accurately. ] Verse 3
G BI'll see her standing by the monorail
Em G7She'll look the same except for bionic eyes
C Gmaj7She lost the real ones in the robot wars
C G BI'll say I'm sorry, she'll say it's not your fault
EmOr is it?
EmM7 And she eyes me suspiciously
Em7 AHearing the whir of the servos inside
C DShe will scream and try to run
C DBut there's nowhere she can hide
C D C DWhen a crazy cyborg wants to make you his robot bride
Chorus
G DWell it's gonna be the future soon
Em CI won't always be this way
G DWhen the things that make me weak and strange get
Am G/B C Dengineered away

Em Cnever seen it quite so clear
Cm G Amwhen my heart is breaking I can close my eyes and
D7sus4it's already here
